Presented by the Toowoomba Orchid Society established in 1955, this exhibition took around thirty minutes to appreciate. Members are growers from Toowoomba and surrounds, both novice and experienced breeders. There are four shows throughout each year, one per season. Workshops are also available plus social events. Growing sheets are available online.
